Scouting Report
: Undersized infielder with a thick, filled-out frame. Sturdy, physically mature. No remaining projection, below-average athlete. Switch-hitter that starts open and utilizes a slight leg lift from both sides of the plate. Swing is longer from the right side, where he shows more power - although power isnít a part of his game. Left-handed swing is shorter and more direct to the ball. Below-average speed. Played primarily second base coming up, but added third base to his repertoire during Spring Training 2018. Can play first base in a pinch. Lacks athleticism to work at second base at a major league level. Decent hands, minimal range. Drafted by Washington out of high school, did not sign and opted to attend Florida. Played four seasons for the Gators. Named to the SEC All-Freshmen team in 2012. Played in the College World Series in 2012 and 2015. Senior sign for the Phillies in 2015. Spent two seasons in the Philadelphia organization. Traded to the Red Sox in 2016 for Clay Buchholz. Projects as a high minors organizational player. Lacks a carrying tool to project as a major leaguer.
